Copyfight in Canada [Jun 11] »

Shan and I enjoyed ourselves exploring Winnipeg this past Friday.

We started with Cafe Americanos and some tasty treats at the Pastry Castle. A group of ladies from out of town asked us where they could find souvenirs. We sent then across the street to the Keepsake Gallery.

After our coffee we walked over to Mayberry Fine Art and then on to Ragpickers Anti-Fashion Emporium. The second floor of Ragpickers houses a wonderful collection of (mainly non-fiction) used books. (I gravitate to their philosophy section). I picked up the Manticore (Robertson Davies); Godel, Escher, Bach (Douglas R. Hofstadter) and two books from Issac Asimov’s Foundation series.

Antiques and Funk is just around the block, and there I bought a lovely old Gillette razor.

A short stroll in the rain and we found ourselves at the Yellow Dog Tavern. Draft beer (especially Half Pints) seems to taste best when drank at the Yellow Dog.

After a delicious sushi dinner in the village Wasabi we were ushered off the street into Music Trader by Pete Samples and John Ward. They played whimsical music for us, blew bubbles from plastic ice-cream cone dispensers, and even performed a magic trick.

Oh, and I shaved the mustache. The “Chaplin” also paid us a visit.
